I am analyzing rice samples for SNP detection using GATK, and for the base recalibration, I need a set of known sites for rice. For human that is usually dbsnp141.vcf available at the DBSNP ftp site (for human):
I was wondering if I could the VCF files for rice (rice_4530  in the same list, Oryza Sativa, which is the rice species that I am analyzing)
Can I use the VCF file in the link above as the know sites (or gold standards)? Are there additional VCFs out there that I can use?

This should work and should be good enough. Base recalibration is not going to bring any drastic difference in the results unless your sequencing data is real bad.

This link does not contain anything.

Where can I find known rice snps (indica and japonica, both)

From the University of Sydney (

"Oryza sativa spp.Indica and Oryza 
sativa spp.Japonica EST data sets were 
downloaded from National Centre for 
Biotechnology Information dbEST (Mar -
2009). These datasets contain 106,532 
and 833,672 ESTs, respectively. The 
Single Nucleotide Polymorphism 
database (dbSNP) was downloaded 
from NCBI (rice_4530) for data 

rice_4530: Oryza sativa, rice_4536: Oryza nivara


So my best guess is that it would fit fine for your dataset.

Am also working on rice genome. Can i use snps from the below database to perform base recalibration?
